Clint Eastwood proves again that he Owns the western genre with this odd tale of land reform insurrection and establishment blowback in New Mexico of 1906. To direct the script by the great Elmore Leonard, Eastwood brought in the western movie legend John Sturges, who discovered that collaboration now meant acceding to whatever the star wanted. The beautifully filmed movie falls apart even though Sturges saved the day with an 11th hour stunt action climax. With Robert Duvall, John Saxon, Don Stroud and Stella García. On Blu-rayfrom KL Studio Classics.
